    LOL
    This is a FUNNY strip! So TOTALLY opposite of the real world where the President spends multiple trillions of dollars by rewarding his cronies in failing firms, annihilates any possibility of job growth, illegally runs guns to Mexico, freely associates with terrorists, and blows millions on family vacations and private jets for the family dog while his Secret Service agents party with hookers and brawl in bars and he’s TOTALLY unaccountable…But Doonsebury pokes excellent fun by making it like the opposite! Hahaha! I LOVE this guy!

    I wonder if he’ll deal with his ruling by fiat and promoting voter fraud next?

    Capitalism is was it is and will not become kinder and gentler by voting for the Democrats either. Like Malcolm said, “The difference between the Republicans and the Democrats is like the difference between the wolf and the fox. . .”
    Yes, the class struggle is simmering from below like never before in most of our lifetimes.

    Yep. Personally, I’m headed off to get a few hours rest. Let ‘em fight it out amongst themselves.
    Bet you and I can both list the combatants, avatar by avatar. I also bet that by the time I come back to this strip, they’ll have all been here. Have a good night/morning/Sunday…

    Orion: nothing like a little “honest” profit-taking on Iraq, or opening a few more plants, in China, to make patriotic conswervatives swoon, is there?

    It’s like summoning Beetlejuice, except you only have to say the name once.

    As venture-capitalist billionaire Nick Hanauer has pointed out, capitalists create jobs when no other easier way to make a profit is available. They take on more employees only when they have to, as a last resort. They are not job creators, they are just part of a complex system that depends as much on consumers as upon them. “I make a hundred times as much money as the average American, but I don’t buy a hundred times as much stuff, or use a hundred times more services.” The capitalists are invaluable and necessary to make the system work, just like the workers on the factory floor, just like the consumers buying in the stores. No one group is more responsible for creating jobs than the others. Of course, some people can’t bear the thought of complexity, and want to reduce everything to a stupid simplicity.

    “The American revolution was caused by British soldiers firing upon colonists at Lexington. It has nothing to do with the evolving nature of American society or British policy. The Civil War was caused by South Carolina firing on Fort Sumter, but had nothing to do with slavery or regional differences. The Second World War was caused by Germany invading Poland, it has nothing to do with Hitler or Nazism. And jobs are created when someone who controls money decides pay out some of it for another employee.” It is that kind of reductionist, mindless “thinking” that leads us to kowtow to people who are our equals and fellow citizens as though they were our lords and masters.

    Three cheers for a free market economy, where created goods and services are bought sold by principles of supply and demand. But we are in danger of becoming a free market society, where everything, rights, privileges, our common good, out common natural resources, our citizenship, our very souls, are all bought and sold.

    Try taking off the fun-house glasses some time and looking at the real world.

    And the difference between Dems, Reps, and Socialists, is like the difference between the wolf, the fox, and the bear. If you have to wrestle with one of those three, would you think it made no difference which one it was?


    Class struggle simmering as never before? You’re joking, right? That’s the kind of fantastical analysis one expects from the Tea Party types.
